    Aguereberry Point offers a great view of the valley floor. Views of Badwater basin can be seen. Beautiful rock banding showing the layering of time. The point was named after Pete Aguereberry who is said to have built the first road to the point. He was a long time prospector in the area.

    It is a long drive in to the point. The last few hundred yards to the point can be a little nerve racking because of the narrow road and vast view. I really enjoyed the drive in and because I did it late in the day I saw no one at all.

    Mine opening

    For years did a guy live and work all by himself in the heart of the desert, looking for gold. He made about 175.000 dollars..during his whole life. Not very impressive perhaps, but the mines are quite impressive and so is his house, which, despite vandals, is pretty well preserved. One can't enter the main mines during the winter due to sleepy bats, but there is anothet entrance where you wont disturb the bats too much. Keep in mind that it's completely on you OWN risk you enter ANY mines in the Valley.
